1 Peter 2:4-5
To whom coming, as to a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,…
Christians, you are priests. Be like Christ in this,
1. Wherever you go carry a savour of Christ. Let men take knowledge of you, that you have been with Jesus; let it be plain that you come from within the veil, let the smell of your garments be as a field which the Lord hath blessed.
2. Carry a sound of Christ wherever you go. Not a stop, Christians, without the sound of the gospel bell! Even in smallest things, be spreading the glad sound, Edwards says, wherever a godly person enters, he is a greater blessing than if the greatest monarch were entering. So be it with you.
(R. M. McCheyne.)
